Alissa was born and raised in beautiful San Diego. Her love for movement began as a little girl at the age of 5 when she started gymnastics. As an adult Alissa discovered Pilates by accident and it was love at first plank, ever since then she has been trying to inspire people to be active and push themselves just a little bit further in a safe and fun environment. In her spare time Alissa can be found doing Pilates of course and spending time with her husband and son, riding bikes and hiking, traveling with friends and family.
